Tutors in Vauxhall

Vauxhall is a vibrant area in the south of London with a mixture of commercial and residential districts, restaurants and pubs, there is certainly a lot going on here! Vauxhall has a rich history and there are many competing theories as to how the area got its name. Some say the name came from King John’s mercenaries and the surrounding area known as ‘Faulke’s Hall’, later becoming ‘Foxhall’ and eventually ‘Vauxhall’. Others suggest that the name is derived from the Russian word for a large central railway station, ‘vokzal’. Learning Russian with us at Tavistock Tutors? Vauxhall has an interesting Russian side to its history which includes a visit from Tsar Nicholas I of Russia in 1844.

The point of tutoring is that it is the student's time to learn. It is all about them, not anyone else on their course, or their ordinary tutors. The student needs to feel comfortable showing where their weak points are, and being honest about how much they can do to improve. I believe that it is important to build up...

I believe in creating a personalised, engaging and supportive tutoring experience for tutees. It’s no secret that different students learn different ways and test best using different strategies. A huge part of understanding how a student thinks is to listen carefully. However, part of tutoring is showing students things about themselves that they might not have previously realised. This means taking...

One to one learning allows the student to develop at a pace which best suits them and allows them to achieve their goals. Design...

My teaching methodology is highly focused. I deliver clear and structured lessons designed to target students' problem areas. I combine this with regular progress check-ups, so tutees see what they have learnt and gain confidence in the subject. At the same time, I draw examples from my broad  Natural Sciences degree to ensure that tutees maintain interest....
